Whenever i have some free time in my hands i like to visit Reddit and several other forums to check the "hottest" topics and as many of you know these usually have to do with NVIDIA and AMD or Intel and AMD (the usual "flame" topics). Lately however a new "flame" topic has emerged and has to do with Cherry MX and other mechanical switches by less "popular" brands. Due to the number of manufacturers using them in their keyboards Kailh sits at the top of those brands and although i do realize that the company to pioneer a specific technology is bound to receive more respect and acknowledgment from consumers at the same time i don't believe that it's impossible for another manufacturer to release an equally good product (although in all likelihood just like other manufacturers QPAD turned to Kailh because Cherry MX couldn't deliver due to extreme demand). QPAD seems to believe so as well since a while ago they released their top-of-the-line MK-90 Pro Gaming Mechanical Keyboard using Kailh switches and today we're going to check and see if this was the right choice.
QPAD built its success on a grassroots commitment to the gaming community. Like you, we thrive in the madness of competition and embrace the free spirit of gaming. Our sponsorship of the Q Tour, King of Nordic, events, communities, cups, tournaments, teams and LAN parties reflects this commitment. The knowledge we've gained has fed into our development of high quality products that deliver great performance and given many a winning edge.
The MK-90 Pro Gaming Mechanical Keyboard by QPAD is aimed towards serious gamers and even professionals who are not in need of extra bells and whistles like dedicated macro and media navigation keys. Still it comes fully loaded and features a nice matte black rubber coating, Kailh red mechanical gaming switches (linear with 40g actuation force and rated for up to 60 million keystrokes), individual RGB backlighting for the keys (5 brightness levels with 7 effects), 6-Key and N-Key rollover (NKRO), white metal plate beneath the keys (improves illumination), two port USB hub, microphone and headphone passthrough, 5 different profiles and on-the-fly macro recording. So the time has finally come for us to see if our friends over at QPAD are as good with keyboards as they are with mice.
